    Koss KSC-35 vs. KSC-75

    Quote: Originally Posted by Wodgy Just looking at the curves, the PortaPro/KSC-35 drivers are clearly electrically different from the KSC-55/SportaPro drivers. This just reinforces the evidence that the PortaPro/KSC-35 drivers use neodymium magnets and the others use samarium cobalt...

    Wireless headphones?

    The only wireless headphones I'd spend money on are the xdream system or the Amphony system. Alternatively, Koss just came out with a wireless system that lets you use your own favorite headphone -- worth considering.

    Zen Xtra - Best Sound?

    Quote: Originally posted by insomniac MacDEF, do you think you could explain the difference in sound between the ipod and the zen xtra? I personally find the iPod to be a bit more accurate; i.e., flatter. The Zen was a bit more "exciting" in that it had a bit of emphasis at certain...

    Zen Xtra - Best Sound?

    It's debatable. The Zen and the iPod, IMO, have the best sound of all the players. I personally prefer the iPod's sound, but I can see why someone might prefer the Zen. Both are clearly better than the rest, from my experience.

    Expensive buy in headphone gears that disappointed you?

    Quote: Originally posted by Rizumu Finally, someone who agrees with me. The PX200's design is great, they work perfectly for portable, and yet the sound is so blah. It's really too bad. That was a disappointment to be sure. You must not have gotten a good seal. (Seriously!) Before...

    Sennheiser HD600 vs HD650 vs Beyer DT880

    Quote: Originally posted by Geek DT880: Slightly deeper bass, less bass bump at 100hz. Slightly more upper midrange, treble is one notch louder. Sound could be described as just a hair "drier" than the HD600, but it's more up-front. Agreed, except for the "slightly deeper bass." To...

    BOSE for musicians. New PA system. A 180 degree in the pro-audio industry

    Ari, I understand your position, but you have to keep in mind that most informed audio people take such Bose announcements with a big grain of salt. After all, most of Bose's big announcements of "technological innovations" tend to be little more than snake oil pitches
